    Waiting for AF...
    momofone08 posted:
    I hate waiting for AF to show. Always seems to take forever when your actually waiting for it. I took Provera for five days, and today is the first day not on it. I'm cramping but thats about it.

    Any of you ladies who have taken Provera, how long does it take for AF to show up?( I'm starting Clomid this Cycle so I really want it to come )

    Thanks for any thoughts

    Hi Kim,

    Anytime I have taken it for 5 days, AF arrived within 2-3 days of taking the last pill. But, this last time, I took it for 10 days, and had some spotting during the last two days and AF was here the first full day after taking the last pill.

    Hopefully she gets here soon so you can get on with things! Good luck this cycle--let us know when she finally makes her appearance! :)

    Hi Megan,
    Thank you for replying to my post. So 7 days later still no AF. :-( And I just realized that my dr didnt take a Urine sample from me so I'm freaking out because I know provera can be bad if I was lucky last cycle. I did just call but hes on lunch so Im hoping to get a reply soon from him. Really curious whats going on.

    Probably the longest 7 days ever... :(

    I am pretty sure waiting 10 days or so is not uncommon. But who wants to wait 10 days? I am not sure what makes it shorter for some and longer for others. How many days did you take Provera?

    Hang in there. It sounds weird, but I hope AF shows up for you soon.
